Ol' Mama Squirrel has raised lots of babies, and she knows just how to protect them. Whenever trouble comes nosing around, she springs into action with a determined “Chook, chook, chook!" and scares trouble away. Her bravery is put to the test, however, when a really big threat wanders into town and onto her tree. But no matter what, Mama's not about to back down!
"Stein's expressive watercolor and ink illustrations fill each spread. Zany, blocklike animals are drawn with animated gestures, drawing readers into the humorous, but caring subject of a mother's love. Storytellers will find themselves animating Mama's frantic gestures and youngsters will enjoy the short, fast-paced passages on each page." -- Krista Welz, School Library Journal
